which is incorrect: between -*- and mode some white space is
required. At least my versions of GNU Emacs I use to read the
complain with:

        Ignoring unknown mode `*-mode'

in *Messages* when the recover the last session/desktop with this
file open.

Which version are you using?

A few Carbon, Aqua, and X11 versions of GNU Emacsen 22 and 23 – and in GNU Emacs 21.3.50 too, now that I know the real cause!

Do you see the same warning when you visit README.unicode


It was more of a guess: the message was close to loading this file (cvs-mode) and it had a line with `*-mode' ... This morning I made a real test and deleted file after file until the message vanished when launched again. In the end README.unicode was not the culprit, a different file is it, in which I saved the fontsets in use in one version of Carbon Emacs 22. The file starts with (first five lines):

        Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-default
        Fontset: -*-*-medium-r-normal--10-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-hiraginokaku
        Fontset: -*-*-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-hiraginokaku
        Fontset: -*-*-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-hiraginokaku
        Fontset: -*-*-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-hiraginokaku

And loading this file creates in *Messages* the warning:

        Ignoring unknown mode `*-mode'

So it seems to be more of a bug with local-variables ...
